Back To Front Page


The Chesterton wrestling team sent its seniors out the right way with a decisive 63-18 Duneland Athletic Conference victory over Valparaiso on Wednesday night.

“I have been coaching for a long time,” Chesterton coach Chris Joll said. “Having a group of seniors like this is not something that comes along very often.”

The Trojans dominated the night right from the start with victories from Ryne Beckman (152), Diego Lemley (160), Zeke Highlan (170), Cade Girgenti (182), Lucas Davison (195) and Kevin Mochen (220) to build a 35-0 lead.

Brandon Bolin (106), Danny Tolin (113) and Ethan Kaiser (120) ran off three victories before Nick Winland (132) and Troy Johnson (145) closed out the night with wins.

“We are the team we are and are having the success we have because of our senior class,” Joll said. “the underclassmen do not have to look very far to see a great role model.”

That senior class includes Beckman, Davison, Girgenti, Highlan, Johnson, Lemley and Mochen.

“They are seven totally different kids,” Joll said. “I am extremely grateful to have been allowed to be a part of their lives. Tonight, they showed the community what hard work and dedication will get you.”

The Trojans return to the mat on Saturday with they travel to Portage for the DAC Meet beginning at 9 a.m.
